Many thanks to Coley for sending this through.

What:  Ladies in the House - electoral forum on women's issues

When:  Tuesday 8th November, 6pm - 7.30pm for forum, nibbles and mingles after that

Where:  Level 1, mezzanine floor, Wellington Central Library

Message from the organisers (Wellington Young Feminists' Collective):
Come and hear what your candidates are planning to do for local women and ask them the questions that matter... like why there only two female Wellington Central candidates. Or why abortion is still in the Crimes Act. Or why after the 2008 election only 27% of electorate MPs were women.

Women’s issues are everyone’s issues. Let's make them election issues.

Featuring:
  • Paul Foster-Bell (National Party Candidate for Wellington Central)
  • Jordan Carter (Labour Party List Candidate)
  • Stephen Whittington (ACT Party Candidate for Wellington Central)
  • Holly Walker (Green Party Candidate for Hutt South)
  • Jan Logie (Green Party Candidate for Mana)
  • Brent Pierson (NZ First Candidate for Rongotai)
  • Marise Bishop (NZ First Director, Chairperson for Mana Electorate)
Chaired by the amazing Bryony Skillington

Free entry, koha welcome for light refreshments.

Followed by drinks at 3C on Chews Lane.

All welcome!

I understand there may also be a live tweetstream?  Look for #ladiesinthehouse on Tuesday night (or even before, I've seen a few gems floating around with that attached).

Is the event intended for women only, or are men welcome to attend?

In my experience "All welcome" usually means exactly that. Someone from WYFC itself may care to expand?

Men are indeed welcome.
